  • CMAngelos

    This is amusing.. I almost want to print these out to give out at the FLGS.

  • batthemadbat

    24… I’m a nerd and I know it.

  • Andrew Stent

    21 points not too bad

  • Gleep

    also 24 here…

  • Grafton Is Dust

    I’m a unicorn…?

    • Grafton is Dust, I don’t think I’m qualified to determine whether you fit into that category or not. Only you can categorize your fiddley bits into either unicorn/big foot status or non-unicron/bigfoot status. 😀

    • But seriously, I’ve played for many years, and in many different states, and only ever played with one woman once. I’ve met two other that claim to play but I never saw them play. So it really is uncommon, sadly. I think mixed genders make everything better, usually.

  • batthemadbat

    btw… do I get bonus points for growing a neckbeard?

  • Insert_nickname_here

    34. I need to re-evaluate my priorities.

    • petrow84

      That makes two of us…

  • shiwan

    Cocaine captain.

  • jcdent

    Only 14! And two of those because I ran a demo game of Infinity for my girlfriend.

    Used to travel about an hour in Japan to play Kill Team…

    Like the dig at 9th Age!

  • pad_uk

    WraithKnight (35)! Winning! 🙂 Wait – that IS a good thing right??

  • Ned Limpohpoh

    …34… I think I have a problem….

  • pad_uk

    BTW: Fun article as always Pimpcron! Love your work. 😀

    • Thanks for reading pad_uk. I appreciate the kind words.

  • Jordan Holt

    41 WraithKnight on ‘Roids and Red Bull m/

    The ‘roll ones’ made me laugh a lot 😀

    This was a lot of fun. Can we get patches made and put them on a sash like Boy Scouts?

    • nuggy

      The ‘roll ones’ have happened to me too many times then I care to remember -.-

      I second your request to patches!

  • Davis Centis

    33 points. Been at this a long time!

  • Jacob Karlsson

    Only 23, which I consider low for 17 years in the hobby.

    I have played more than one wargame in the past though, and it looks like I will play more than one in the future. Right now it’s only one though. So maybe it should be a 24.

  • vlad78

    39. i never realized.

  • Jared van Kell

    36 points. Wraith knight on roids and red bull. I need to re-evaluate my life and start getting out a bit more.

  • 26!

  • benn grimm

    Very awesome 🙂 I think I like ‘powerfisting’ best…)

  • WooHoo! Pass! I’ma 28! ….oh..wait. aaaaaaaaaw…..

  • MPSwift

    23, captain on coke it is!

  • petrow84

    What’s for getting tabled in turn 1, within 15 minutes, after you spent 20 minutes with deployment?

  • euansmith

    I got 20 on the nose; though I do have over 13,000pts in Comments.

    Doesn’t everyone create their own Space Marine Chapter with some fluff. My Ion Pyrites feel left out.

    Thanks for another chuckle, Pimpcron.

    • Xodis

      All of my Space Marines are going to be primary chapters and Deathwatch……the hard part is getting them out of their boxes lol

    • CatachanCommissar

      I have 35. I feel like a real life ugly bridge troll now. How did I ever get girls…

    • I can’t get into an army unless I make up fluff and unique chapters for them. The few armies I don’t own are because they didn’t strike my imagination. Thanks for reading euansmith! And yes, you should be sitting at about 13,000 due to internet comments. lol

  • Lord of Deeds

    24. Especially proud of Flayed one w/ bonus achievement.

    Blue star for you Pimpcron for a great article.

    • euansmith

      I seem to average one minor stabbing per project. Fortunately nothing serious yet.

    • GulMek

      Considering the amount of times I’ve opened myself up like a new Ork product, I’m really surprised I haven’t had to get any stitches for them. Then I open one nerd gun and need 3 stitches *facepalm*

    • Much appreciated Lord of Deeds!

  • chip6793

    18….I think I can live with that….

    BEST ARTICLE EVER!!! it’s nice to be able to read something that isn’t dissing anything and honestly aimed at fun.

    Incidentally, I agree with one of the previous posts about getting the Boy Scout badges made up!!! 🙂 That would be too funny!!!!

  • TheSlann

    32, well that escalated quickly…

  • AnomanderRake

    34. A bit excessive, I know.

    So when the 9th Age people get official models released as a separate wargame does it get taken off the ‘play old editions of Warhammer’ section?

    • Yeah I guess so. By then they will have really branched out.

  • Damistar

    I only got a 28, I lost points for not being a tournament power gamer.

  • Bulvi Nightbane

    53 points. What is after Wraithknight? Kaldor Draigo on warp dust.

    • petrow84

      Maybe “Calgar-pimpslapping-Avatar”

    • A bunch of nasty Forgeworld stuff all Voltron-ed together on PCP.

  • CthulhuDawg

    35. The playa, married to the hobby and drowning in models got me some extra points. I’m at 16 years played, 18 armies across 4 games, 6 games if you count K47/Bolt Action and Warmahordes as separate games. I’ve also already set aside enough for two boxes of Rune Wars…I think I need help.

  • Nogle

    I’m sitting somewhere around 45. When you’ve been playing in tournaments for twenty years, it’s hard to have an exact count on wins.

  • Ross Allan

    In the highest category.

  • loyle

    27 got my special unicorn at home to play with me!

  • Xodis

    Im going to need these in a printable PDF styled format so embroidered patches can be made….lets Pokemon badge this stuff!!!!

  • Xodis

    28, not sure if I should be happy or sad lol

  • Benandorf

    Ended up with a 29… I’m not sure if I should be proud or embarrassed.

  • Drew_Da_Destroya

    22. That’s pretty solid, since I’ve taken both the “Gotten Tabled” and “Tabled Someone” bonus points.

  • BenTheMan

    31 – Really Great Greater Deamon on Salts. ^^

  • polyquaternium7

    22 – I thought it would be a lot higher :p started since 2nd edition

  • Gaoramon

    29 for me. I’ve been doing this for way longer than I thought…

  • Walter Vining


  • Sigmarine

    26 – can’t believe I’ve been wargaming for over 15 years, All started with a copy of Warhammer Quest.

  • Gorgosaurusrex

    I got 34, not counting the tournaments I’ve won. So I’m probably at 55 total… I played in a LOT of Rogue Trader tournaments back in 4th and 5th edition.

  • Jeremy Larson

    31…Should I make the extra effort to bump it up?

  • Divergent_Reality

    18, I am a Space Marine Captain on Cocaine. Indoctrination is easy when you worked at a game store. If I got a point for every started box I sold I would have a much higher score.

  • Spacefrisian

    32 points, but i hate red bull energy drinks.

  • Andrew Thomas


  • Just_Me77

    21, I really thought mine would be higher…

  • nuggy

    40… Im ok with this.

  • 21 Space marine captain on cocaine lol

  • Matt Mo

    24 here. I quite enjoyed that. Thank you Pimpcron

  • Jerin Price

    25 points… and I didn’t get the in the hobby for 5 years one if that tells you anything lol

  • Deez

    I got bad touch on my first game in years just three days ago. Took a heck of a shot from a group of Scimitar Jetbikes with a Volkite Culverin. After many wounds and a terrible armor save roll (all ones), six of my ten man tac squad lay KIA.

  • Bran D

    22 points! Cocaines a hell of a drug!

  • Ryan Davis

    27… So proud I love the concept of a greater deamon on bath salts!!

  • Mr.Gold

    23 – SM Captain

  • John Robert Hurley

    29 – Greater Daemon on Bath Salts

  • 26. Eh, it’s allright. xD

  • Prospero

    27, not bad. Love the achievements.

  • FatherMapple

    Man… I got 31. I’ve only been involved since 2009. I read some of the comments and laughed at them, at first. Now I have this building sense of dread in my gut.

  • Ty Hayden

    33… I wish I still had access to a card printer, it would be fun to make these and add them to my Con Lanyard.

  • Sebastian Marrero

    I also scored a 28, missing in a few categories like playing over 10 years, winning more than one tournament, net listing, and old hammer, but I came to realize how deep I’ve gone in.

  • JP

    18, but honestly, the Legendary Creature one should probably be worth 50 points by itself.

  • A.P.

    27, this does make me both sad and proud oddly

  • Morgrim

    20, and am apparently a unicorn. I find comments about women being so rare weird, since they’re a solid (if fluctuating) 5-20% of the places I play. It really shows that different areas have different wargaming cultures.

    • Great to hear! I’ve played for 8 years and only ever played 1 woman. Many different states and gaming stores, only 1 gal. So yes, unfortunately you are the Great White Unicorn.

  • doughouseman

    Something north of 55 (I don’t have tournament counts). But more than 50 years of gaming will do that to you.

  • Grand_Master_Raziel

    I got a 23. I think I deserve a bonus point for Indoctrination, because I have gotten female human beings into the hobby.

  • Tothe

    What? No achievement for destroying an AV14 vehicle with a Grot? Every game needs an impossible achievement to troll completionists.
